2016 Reading Challenge Update

If you’re active on Goodreads, you’ve probably set yourself a reading challenge for the year. I actually started the year with a goal to read 50 books, and coming out of April I have already read 45 books!!! I am definitely leagues ahead of where I thought I would be for reading this year, so I think it’s time to reevaluate my reading goal and set myself up for the next 2/3 of the year.

If you follow me over on Instagram you might have seen the little post I put up last night about changing my goal from 50 books to 120 books. If I wanted to achieve this goal then I would need to read around 9 or 10 books per month for the rest of the year.

Am I scared and daunted by the idea of reading 120 books this year? FRICKITY FRACK YES I AM! That’s a craaaaaazy amount of books to attempt reading. But, is it going to be worth it to push myself to achieve something awesome? Definitely.

At this stage I am currently 5 books ahead of schedule, which gives me a little bit of buffer room. I’m hoping to keep my reading pace up so I can smash out 120 books easily.

  1. So, I’ve never read the Lemony Snicket series, even though I know they’re children’s books.. How are they? I thought about picking them up sometime.


  2. Impressive progress with your challenge! I too set myself a 50+ goal & am pretty much on track, although there is sooooo much I want to read I am trying to find ways to increase my reading output 😀
